Introduction To Weather Briefings
As a pilot one of the things we need to be most concerned about is the weather along our intended route for every flight we undertake. The more we know the safer we will be.
While many of us fear the words "I am with the FAA, and I am here to help you", the FAA does provide many excellent services that we should participate in.
One of those service are the periodic webinars put on by the FAA Safety Team who work to make safer skies through education.
